Let the sunshine in
XYou're not only getting fresh air and exercise when you're gardening, but you're also absorbing the 'Sunshine Vitamin'.
Vitamin D is essential to the development of your immune system, as well as helping in keeping bones strong. Getting enough Vitamin D when you're younger can help to keep bone diseases like osteoporosis at bay.
Doing garden activities allows your body to form Vitamin D naturally under the skin. Remember, your garden is natures very own gym!
